Overview of Wolverine Boot Technologies

Overview of Wolverine Boot Technologies

The Wolverine brand has been around for over 130 years. They are known for being innovative and never sacrificing quality for cost. Throughout the years Wolverine has introduced various work boots that feature specially-designed technologies made to fit the needs of its customers. In this blog post, we will introduce you to some of the technologies used on Wolverine boots, making shopping for a pair of boots a whole lot easier.


Steel Toe – Steel Toe boots have ASTM F2413-11 1/75 C/75 rated steel reinforcement over the toe box which protects the wearer’s toes from being crushed or severed.  


Composite Toe – Composite toe boots contain ASTM F2413-11 1/75 C/75 rated composite reinforcement in the toe area to help protect the wearer’s toes. They are lightweight and non-conductive, perfect if a wearer has to work with electricity.


Metatarsal Guard – Metatarsal guards are metal shields worn over work boots in order to protect the entire foot from being injured or crushed. The metatarsal guards are rated ASTM F2413-11 1/75 C/75 MT/75.


Puncture Resistant – Wolverine’s puncture resistant work boots are built with an internal insole that prevents puncturing of the boots. These boots meet ASTM F2413-11 standards.


Electrical Hazard (EH) – Electrical Hazard boots (also known as EH boots) are rated ASTM F2413-11 1/75 C/75 EH. These boots are built in a way that protects the wearer from electrical currents on dry surfaces. This minimizes the risk of the wearer getting electrocuted.


Static Dissipating (SD) – Static Dissipating boots are entirely designed to dissipate the static electricity build-up on your body.


GORE-TEX® - GORE-TEX® fabric is used to line Wolverine boots making them waterproof while still allowing them to be breathable.


Waterproof – Wolverine’s waterproof boots are made out of waterproof leather with seams that are sealed to keep water out.


Thinsulate® - Thinsulate® is an insulation made out of microfibers that is used on Wolverine boots. They dry quickly and keeps the wearer’s feet warm even when wet.


All of these special technologies are what make Wolverine Boots one of our best sellers.
